Today is Monday, November 10th, 2014; Karen's Korner #2941

Today I want to share with you some of the favorite Bible verses people shared with me in sympathy cards at the time of Jim's death. If they are meaningful to the writers, they could be meaningful to me and you as readers of Karen's Korners.

People ask me how I am doing and I would have to say remarkably well. I keep discovering reasons why. First I thought it was we had learned to take one day at a time for years and I didn't realize that. The last few days I have a knowing that our life was filled with miracles because I/we had Jim for so many more years than we could have had. And, when we are Christians and the faith which we believe, the 'miracles' never end!

I will come to you."

"For God has said, 'I will never, never fail you nor forsake you.

"I pray that God will help you overflow with hope in him

through the Holy Spirit's power within you."
